-- faithfully execute the office of president of the united states. barack obama then stop, pause, smiled -- as if to say, come on, this is my big day, you have to get this right. unfortunately, he did not get it right. the very next night in the white house, they did it again. this time roberts used notes that he did not use the first time and got it right. >> jim bendat, author of a "democracy's big de." part of a three day holiday weekend on cspan 2's book tv. >> "washington journal" continues. but host: the cost of this second presidential inauguration, as opposed it -- as reported by christina from the huffington post. how much is this going to cost? guest: [inaudible] to understand the cost we need to see it as two different pieces. the first is was being paid for by the inaugural committee. the national the of service on saturday, the concert last night, the candlelight event coming up tonight. and the presidential inaugural committee is expected to raise $50 million. the second component is a public event. 600,000 800,000 people on the mall. host: we will get to your calls and com
obama is being officially sworn in as the president of the united states. earlier this day, joe biden was sworn in as vice president of the united states. tomorrow, it will be a ceremonial, but today it is official. what a great day. what a great day that we are celebrating emily's list success in strength in numbers. women leading the way. isn't that exciting? 15 more women senators in the united states senate. that is remarkable. in this cycle, we have 80 more democratic women in the house bringing our number to 61 women in the house. [applause] you hear a lot about how people asking how the republicans are going to reach the women,how are some people going to reach women voters. we are asking them to serve. we're asking them to have a seat at the table. that is why of the congress of the united states that was just sworn in two weeks ago there was a minority congress fear. they have a seat at the head of the table. they have at the head of the table. isn't she spectacular? isn't emily's list spectacular? strategic thinking. we are talking about dedication. we're talking about succe
. and it is -- there is an elite group, the most elite group in the world is the group of presidents of the united states. >> right. and the most elite of the elite are the group who have been re-elected. >> mm-hmm. >> and so i think that this is their chance, this is obama's chance to really say put it out there and say this is -- the first time is really -- this is what i want to do, and the second time is, like, this is what i want to be. and i think that in a case of a black president it's even more important because the first time around it was jubilant, it was the first black president, it was so exciting. the second time around is this wasn't a fluke. this guy really did it. he did a good job, and the american people reaffirmed that he did a good job and re-elected him. and so many-in some way because he's a black president i think that the second inaugural for him is more important than the first. >> well, that is the reason for the second inaugural. let's go to nbc's peter alexander because peter was there for that d -- the more intimate inaugural, if you will, having been sworn in some 35 minutes ago, gi
, too. democrats run the senate and they haven't passed a budget. president obama is not going to propose one on time. he will wait until after the state of the union. miss the deadline. first, when harry reid says i am not going to the gyrations of the past, i'm going to, going to pass through the senate what we think we can get through the house. >> bob: if this is a monarchy he can do it by himself. but the point is -- >> not his first two years, though. >> bob: what is interesting he made a comment, exactly right. leaving aside the politic comment in 2007 running for president -- >> eric: whoa, whoa, whoa. he voted against raising debt ceiling. >> bob: did you interrupt me? >> sorry. >> he voted against raising the debt ceiling, you are right. but the point is that this money is money that congress passed and appropriated. the congress has to vote on the money. they vote on it. pay your bill. >> if you can't vote on a budget, how can you do that? >> bob: every dime was passed by the congress. >> andrea: first, democratically controlled. >> bob: for two years. >> andrea: he
this time, there is a split in the united states on political parties. big divide? i do not see any future of obama trying to get with the other party. he wants to heckle them, probe them like you would a mad cow orhost: is it more partisan than it has been in the past? it feels. you cannot escape it. the nature of cable tv, which is enormously significant disproportionate to its audience in studying the tone for the debate. differences. it is all about conflict. everything else contributes to the sense that people have that we are more divided than we have ever been before. george washington and john adams, a mob gathered outside washington's homa, denouncing his neutrality. host: we're looking at the veterans affairs secretary. the military, department of defense playing a big role in tomorrow's ceremony. guest: dwight eisenhower took very personally nixon's defeat. he said he knew how the condemned man felt, watching the scaffolding being built. host: people are talking about vice president biden in 2016. is that the measure of a successful presidency? guest: it is, but history argues t
it safely to future generations. thank you. god bless you. god bless the united states of america. [cheers and applause] >> for years ago, and the inauguration of president obama, a scene that will be repeated tomorrow january talented first -- january 21. live coverage of the present official swearing in from the blue room of the white house. we want to welcome john mcconnell who spent eight years with president bush and vice president cheney. thank you for being with us. this is from the "washington examiner." then there is this from the "chicago tribune." the issues will be framed tomorrow at his inaugural address. what will we hear? >> no time to waste me anything -- makes me think of president clinton this is about continuity. his time in office is now half finished. he is more conscious than ever before of the passing of time. he is going to be emphatic about his great ambitions. i do not think this will be a very policy specifics speech. there is an aspiration a level, a bit of discrimination of what we have gone there as a country. this is a characterization of what we have been th
look at it, it's what makes america unique. it is what makes the united states the icon of the world and the way we exercise our democracy, and that's what the inaugural really is. it's a peaceful transition of power this time from obama to obama, but what it shows is that it's the president taking the oath of office to lead an entire nation, to heal some of the divisions of the election, to bring the country together and lead into a second term. from the ceremonial aspect, the pomp and circumstance is much, much different than four years ago when you had hope, change, 1.8 million people on the mall. the first african-american president ever elected. >> the crowd very different. >> the biggest crowd ever in washington ever on the mall including mlk's speech i have a dream. this is a moment we're watching, but that was a transitional moment in american history. >> tell us about as someone who watches these inaugurations, takes a look at history overall, what will you be watching for tomorrow in both the ceremony and the address that the president is going to give? >> well, jenna, i'll
.s. states that have an assault weapons ban define them differently. semiautomatic weapons are a broad category that include the most popular guns used for self-defense, competition, and hunting. when president obama promises that no one's talking about taking away your hunting rifle or your self-defense handgun, it matters that gun control activists may, in fact, be talking about taking away your hunting rifle or your self-defense handgun, whether they know it or not. so let's forgo the arbitrary, ambiguous, fearmongering terms and get real specific about what we actually mean by gun control. it may be politically effective to rail against rapid fire, high capacity, assault weapons. doesn't actually mean anything. so if we're serious, we should at least start by getting the terms right. okay. that does it for "the cycle." martin, it's all yours. >> just a quick question. how many rounds did jared loughner fire off before he was tackled? >> what's your point? >> how many rounds had he fired off? >> i'm not sure. i don't remember. >> 31. >> okay. >> he was actually tackled because he wa
